The route of this path of the last meters of the tourist area of Costa Teguise. On Avenue of the beach from the pools there is ample parking where we can leave our vehicle. Heading north, we will see two old mills, with and without blades, which are lost in the past hotels and apartment complexes. We will have two options to cover the 8 to 10 miles between these towns: a wide road, passable for cars that runs some 30 meters from the coast, and a very TIGHT, marking the routes of the goats, and that is outlined along the coastline. Since transit is safe in both cases, we recommend walking along the shore. The trail is suitable for all ages.
From the outskirts of Costa Teguise and can appreciate the tranquil sea coves that we will overcome. In this first season of kicking it happen a few small ups and downs on the ground easily surmountable. In tops is common to see tourists (see photo at right) who lose their eyes on the blue horizon where sea and sky come together in what looks like a sweet abyss.
About 20 minutes walking home run into the defining The Lighters at the gates of good seating area and bath in a cove tranquilísima, equipped, but very sloppy, a space provided for a barbecue. We will also see a picture in this corner very common in this first stage of kicking: fishermen. Scattered along the coast, appear attached to the charms of the place, moving slowly, waiting for the overconfidence of the piece at the bottom of the sea to break the rhythm and be parsimonious with the catch.
Cover the first time to spend way more rugged stretch where it is practically impossible to lower the sea and which clearly varies stage ahead (see picture left). Will be a few miles to the feeling of being lost, left hand of God, without any hint of life beyond a few species of flora largely camouflaged by the eternal gorse. The silence is deep and rhythmic reverses the steps we are taking. The pe mountain heights flutes remain besieged by a huge amount of volcanic rock that the passage of time has whimsically colored in blacks, browns and reds.
Once this area (after an hour and a half) return to the human footprint. The old goat paths continue to guide us. To the north, a few kilometers, we see the entrance to the coconut and green spots scattered around the back of the mountain that gives back to the people of Guatiza. The patch has all the earmarks of cactus plantations match, confirm suspected over the miles. West contemplate the windmills d and the Valleys and the payment of Mangui, municipality of Teguise. At our side, to the east, the sea, always the sea. Access to it again, again accompanied the fishermen scattered seagulls are, it seems, wishing them luck and waiting for a fish cleaning predictable (see photo at right).
We just over two hours walking. We are in the conurbation of the coconut trees, beach resort in the town of Guatiza, on the verge of a spectacular saline Uncle Alberto Salinas Which, in a small part, keep the activity salt production . Beside him, in a paragraph, is known as Guatiza vat , A corner bath, away from the bravery of the sea off the northeast coast of Lanzarote. We can put an end to the trip here (see route options), with a dip in these quiet waters, sunbathing and rush supplies or the food that we brought. Of course, sooner or later, we suggest a stroll through the surrounding salt to appreciate its construction, the process of salinization and feel in my hands a puñaíto of salt piled nearby. Try it, pure salt brine.
If you chose to complete this trail a few miles north in Charco del Palo, the path is interrupted by the urban space in the palms. Passed the last houses, back to bare ground, this time with a new change of scenery. El Jable, near the coast, is the main protagonist. Guess is good coves throughout this journey. From the way we look at a diver into the sea. Alone, nothing distracts you from the relaxing contemplation ac uática, the clean, rich seabed northeast of Lanzarote. At the approximate time of beginning of this journey from white to urbanization jable stumble Charco del Palo (Teguise and Haria).
Is naked city . A peculiar people nudist north of Lanzarote. The day, with a few drops along the way, has decided it opens up, the sun split the stones more than 20 degrees (this road was held on Saturday December 1, 2007), and the people of Charco del Palo left bathed by the rays as they came into the world from the terraces of their enviable home in front of the sea. Charco del Palo has three main bathing areas. Two wallows with jable, at both ends of the can block, flirty enabled corners that protect us from the wind built from volcanic rock. And yet another bathing area in the center of town, where we find some sort of vat that has used the natural terrain to be set (see photo at right).
